White Balance Explained

When we look at a white object our eyes will automatically adjust to the lighting conditions, so that the object appears perfectly white to use whether we are indoors under a tungsten bulb or out in the bright sunlight.

While our eyes are excellent at making this adjustment, digital cameras aren't. This means that our photos may be left with a blue (cool) or orange (warm) tint.

White balance is the process of giving our camera a helping hand, so that it can reproduce the whites in our photo as they should be.

Once it gets the white right, all the other colours in the scene fall into place, and we're left with an image that perfectly reproduces what our eyes saw.
